Cajon in the 70's

In the early 1970's, I had the opportunity to make several trip to Cajon pass.  This was the period before the top of the pass was re-aligned and lowered and when the War Bonnet scheme was used on Santa Fe's passenger units.  In May of 2000 I had a chance to go back with camera in hand.  The product of that effort can be seen at Cajon 2000 and beyond.
